Updating edit count

Hey Taurolyon, just a heads up, some of the other editors frown on updating our edit counts for any amount less than about 100 edits unless it is enough to bump us into a new category. When the gaps start getting much larger for you, like from 2,500-5,000 or 5K-10K, every 250-500 edits is more appropriate. I could personally care less, but since I used to get flack about it, I figured I'd give you a more friendly heads up than I got. Wink ShoeMaker (Contributions Message) 10:04, April 14, 2012 (EDT)

Thanks for the heads up, Tech. I felt there must have been some taboo adding edits to simply update one's edit count, which is why I try not to update it daily. I will try to be more conscious of this in the future. Taurolyon (ContributionsMessage) 19:19, April 14, 2012 (EDT)


Would you mind if I "cleaned up" your tab display on your page? Ague (ContributionsMessage) 22:40, April 14, 2012 (EDT)

I poked at it one day, and seemed to make it worse, didn't I... lol! I was working on recoding them in a CSS stylesheet similar to yours. Hoping to trim down on some of the wikitable code with a simple class="divUserTabs" on the formatting line.
So far, I've had no luck, and I've been informed the custom user CSS is impaired by the custom TruGlass themes we use. I'll gladly accept any assistance you can render. Smile Taurolyon (ContributionsMessage) 01:58, April 15, 2012 (EDT)
Yeah, no problem... I just wanted to ask before I went and edited your page... if you want to use a different theme (I use Vector) I have a fix that you can put in your common.css file to make the popups work... Ague (ContributionsMessage) 04:33, April 15, 2012 (EDT)
I can't edit your common.css, so you will need to edit it to be like mine... Also, what tabs would you like? I can give you whatever tabs you desire... Ague (ContributionsMessage) 04:42, April 15, 2012 (EDT)
I thought I already put your popup fix in the global MediaWiki:Common.css that is suppose to affect everyone. I'll check it in a minute, and if not, I'll try to get it in there soon. Cool Face ShoeMaker (Contributions Message) 11:30, April 15, 2012 (EDT)

Naming Policy

Lets keep with the current naming policy for future use of shown items: "Name of Item shown.jpg". DDO_wiki:Naming_policy#File_naming Bladedge (ContributionsMessage) 16:59, April 17, 2012 (EDT)

In my opinion, the best way to ensure that people follow the correct naming policy is to work your way through Category:Items without a description image correctly applying Template:Nopic ( {{Nopic|{{subst:PAGENAME}} shown.jpg}} ) as is appropriate. Cool Face ShoeMaker (Contributions Message) 17:20, April 17, 2012 (EDT)
Got it, Blade.
Great tip, Tech. I only worry that I'm going to mistype the filename when I don't click the redlink. Taurolyon (ContributionsMessage) 17:27, April 17, 2012 (EDT)

Focus Orbs

Majority of the focus orb images have been done already including the Artifice ring. They can be found here Focus Orb. Bladedge (ContributionsMessage) 12:15, April 26, 2012 (EDT)

Thanks for the heads up. I'll check there in the future for any other rings. It drove me crazy to get that dang ellipse to target right. Taurolyon (ContributionsMessage) 12:47, April 26, 2012 (EDT)
Gah! I should have checked there for the Zephyr too... Well.. either way, they need to be re-uploaded to match the article name. If only there was a way to change file names via wiki. Taurolyon (ContributionsMessage) 01:50, April 27, 2012 (EDT)
No they dont have to be re-uploaded or rename. All th orbs were name that why to be use universally on any pages that need them as turbine reuses art assists from time to time. One copy use universally so the user does not have to redownload and sever doesn't have to upload the same image under dozens of different names. See Talk:Focus_Orb for glimpse how it was set up. Bladedge (ContributionsMessage) 14:07, April 27, 2012 (EDT)
Thanks, Blade! I'll take a look at it now. Taurolyon (ContributionsMessage) 19:36, April 27, 2012 (EDT)

Redirect 'bug'

While I was updating the Greater Essence images, I noticed when I clicked the template's link greater magical essences in description, which is supposed to redirect to Cannith Crafting#Essences, however it only loads the full Cannith Crafting article and doesn't move to the specified subsection. Example: Greater Water Essence
Let me know what you find out. "Tauro" (Contributions IRC) 12:14, May 5, 2012 (EDT)

Fully works now, at least it does for me. ShoeMaker (Contributions Message) 12:53, May 5, 2012 (EDT)
Odd... greater magical essences (the link on the essence template) is broken under FF12 and Opera 11.62 (Mozilla engines), but Chrome 18.0.1025.168 seems to forward to and works. Just... weird...
Just for a giggle, I tried this link... Greater_magical_essences#Essences -- this does work in FF, and pretty quick too. It seems to keep the #tag post forward, regardless of the redirect page's #tag.

Maybe a test is in order? "Tauro" (Contributions IRC) 00:07, May 6, 2012 (EDT)

I'm using FF12.0 and greater magical essences (the link on the essence template) works just fine for me. It also works using IE 8.0.7601.17514 64-bit, although there is about a 1400ms delay to jump down to the correct section in IE, there is no delay for me in FF12.

Extension Request: Labeled Section Transclusion

Any more of an update on this? I've put my S,W,P project on hold until there's a definitive answer regarding this. I don't want to do a whole lot of work until I am for sure that the edits won't be obsolete once this happens. Ague (ContributionsMessage) 21:03, May 25, 2012 (EDT)

What was the exact name of the extension again? I seem to have misplaced it (a link would be best, I'm old and lazy)... I would like to look over it one more time and then I'll bump the request with Xevo (Contribs • Message) for you. Big Grin ShoeMaker (Contributions Message) 21:23, May 25, 2012 (EDT)
I'm not too sure. It was talked about on Xevo's talk page. I'd look it up, but I'm on my phone and have poor signal where I'm at. Ague (ContributionsMessage) 22:03, May 25, 2012 (EDT)
I just looked over it again and added

to an email I sent him this morning. Maybe you'll get it soon. Big Grin ShoeMaker (Contributions Message) 10:07, May 26, 2012 (EDT)
Sorry I haven't had a chance to respond to this sooner, in the midst of a move, and it's a bit 'o chaos over here. Yes, I haven't heard anything more than what was posted on Xevo (Contribs • Message)'s talk page, to which I don't think he responded. "Tauro" (Contributions IRC) 11:27, May 26, 2012 (EDT)


Sorry, been moving (and fitting in some renovations).. and it's been taking me longer than expected, and my sorry excuse for a desk (some 9 year old particle board thing) didn't survive, so I've only got a few days to complete the move then I should be playing and editing more in July... On the plus side, I just got my coffee maker working again! "Tauro" (Contributions IRC) 09:51, June 26, 2012 (EDT)


Just wanted to say thanks for the advice on putting easy signatures and for creating a sandbox. I hope editing your user talk page to send a message is appropriate (sorry if not). I previewed my change/messsage and it didn't appear to mess up your page's tabs and such (sorry if it does). Nodoze (ContributionsMessage) 11:56, October 24, 2012 (EDT)

Glad I could help. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask, or pop into the IRC channel. "Tauro" (Contributions IRC) 12:01, October 24, 2012 (EDT)
